He’s one of the best-known Major League Baseball legends of all time, and Joe Torre certainly taught his daughter Cristina Torre how to catch.

The 44-year-old woman found herself in a precarious situation while eating at a café in Brooklyn, New York yesterday (June 19) and her reflexes proved to be flawless.

Ms. Torre told press that she heard someone scream that a baby was dangling from a nearby fire escape, and when she got there she was just in time.

Cristina shared, "All of a sudden it slipped. I was still talking to 911 and I just put out my arms and, literally, it was effortless...He landed in my arms."

Proud papa Joe gushed, "The kids are our future, and when you get a situation where the good Lord puts you in a position where you're there, and a child's life is in your hands, literally, it feels good to me. I know it did for her."
